I don't mean to try to make it sound important or overly dramatic. Previously I had installed a lil 59 in the bridge with a 5-way superswitch and DPST, and came up with parallel/series in phase, split coil and out of phase options. The only trouble is that out of 9 sounds I really only liked a couple of them. That's what happens when you don't have a game plan. Guitar goes into closet for 10 years. I pulled it out and some of the settings didn't make any sound at all. Come to find out the lil 59 has an internal short somewhere, which I don't feel like tracking down. As this is the only T-type guitar I own, I figure why not put pickups in it that will make it sound like a Telecaster, rather than something else? I've got a couple Cavalier two-tap "Lion" pickups on order. So will put back the 3-way switch and use the (now) DPDT for tap selection. Basically, a trad and slightly hotter Tele in one. I like that better philosophically than 5-way superswitch what-the-heck-is-going-on shenanigans. While the guitar is all apart, I thought "what else should I do" so I: - got one of those jack socket replacement things and - some copper foil to shield the pickup cavities. One thing that I thought about but have decided against is to try to spray paint this (currently black) to Lake Placid Blue. I don't have any LPB guitars and it weighs heavily on my mind.
